Yep, I've overforked and mulleted both my last 2 bikes and love it for the PNW down hill riding.  Since I live for the downs, I can live with the slack as ... seat angle but certainly don't love it.  Short legs help.  My current bike is a 2017 Transition Patrol with with a 170 mm 29er fork and wheel (stock was 160mm 27.5 fork and wheel).  I sized up to a Large to somewhat compensate for the change in reach on flat ground. Riding anything that is not overforked / mulleted now seems super sketchy to me - I feel like I constantly need to fight not getting tossed over the bars.
